To be a great writer, you need to write.  That sounds simple enough, doesn't it?  In our class, students will have the opportunity to practice writing several genres and craft their own style and voice.  They will have lessons that teach various traits and methods of writing.  Our literature program will be used to point out writers' techniques that we would like to emulate.  Be ready to put your imagination and creativity to work as you become excellent writers in our daily writer's workshop

Great writing begins with great ideas.  Sometimes we can think up amazing story ideas on our own, and sometimes we need to do some research to come up with our ideas.  The following links are great resources for doing research.
